This recipe for Low Carb Cream Cheese Pancakes will rock your socks off. Not only is it gluten-free, it is also sugar-free and totally delicious. You won’t even know it’s healthy!
Gotta love breakfast
But first, I also love great products. I recently got this fabulous package in the mail from I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and I was thrilled.
Last time I made something with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, it was a hit – but because it had all the deliciousness inside of it, melty cheese, eggs, and the spread that made it all come together beautifully. Go check out the recipe for the Grilled Cheese Recipe with Battered Egg Whites. Totally worth it.
So I am totally obsessed with these pancakes.
They are totally sugar-free and gluten-free AND they are low carb, at least enough for me. I don’t care so much about whether something is low carb or not but this is pretty low carb for me… I added some delicious berries to top it off too and make it a true delight. Yum.
But let’s get down to it.. you can actually make these into crepes if you wanted. You’ve just gotta add a little bit less cream cheese and add more egg whites (I tried it that way too) and there ya go. So this recipe is pretty adaptable and versatile. I dig that.

More details: The new I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® is made with plant-based oils and are a source of both monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, as well as a good source of omega-3 ALA. Unilever spreads can be part of an overall healthy, balanced diet and provide a source of good fats, similar to the good fats found in avocados, walnuts and almonds. The new I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® spread has 40% fewer calories and 70% less saturated fat than butter. As with all of their spreads, sticks and sprays, the new I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® contains 0g trans fat per serving, no cholesterol and no partially hydrogenated vegetable oils. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans favor healthy eating patterns that meet nutrient needs and stay within calorie limits, with a focus on nutrient-dense foods from the five major food groups along with vegetable oils and oils contained in seafood, nuts and seeds, which contribute essential nutrients, and recommend using oils to replace solid fats where possible. Plant-based oils are one of the primary ingredients in our spreads. In the past, nutrition advice has overly-emphasized reducing total fat in the diet as a way to lower saturated fat intake and improve cardiovascular health. This advice has led many people to replace saturated fat with foods high in sugar and refined carbohydrates, which does not positively impact cardiovascular health. Research has consistently shown that limiting saturated fat and replacing it with unsaturated, good fats from vegetable oils and foods that are mainly oils like spreads, nuts and avocados may help reduce cardiovascular disease risk. To achieve this benefit, total daily calories should not increase.
